Colour Out of Space is a festival of experimental music and its crossover into other artforms. Since 2006 it has played host to some of the most visionary musicians, sound artists and moving image artists of the last forty years.

COOS is run by Open Music a not for profit arts group based in Brighton.
It's co-ordinated by Dylan Nyoukis, Karen Constance and Michael Sippings, with sound technician Tim Wilton and the help of Brighton's wider experimental arts community.
